Use this registration format if you are a project author or an owner of a site you want to nominate, or if you want to submit your application for Designer of the Year.

Everyone can apply with an unlimited number of projects in an unlimited number of categories. However, applying in more than one category and/or with more than one project is to be done separately for each of the projects and/or categories. For all registrations, an administrative fee is charged for examining the application. Upon receipt of a request for participation, the applicant receives a letter from our system with a pro forma invoice for payment of the fee; the application is considered valid after the payment of the fee within the specified time frame.

A preliminary ranking is held among all registrations. The approved ones pass into the second round and are nominated as potential winners. Each nominated project receives an entry number in the rating system, and the author will receive a notification letter at the e-mail address with which they have applied. The disqualified applications receive a notification letter at the email address from which they are submitted within 10 working days after receiving the payment, with information on the reason for the rejection. Any disqualified project may be submitted again for re-examination, for which the applicant shall pay an additional fee.

The standard fee is BGN 180.00 for the administration of the competition and information processing. The fee for re-examination after a disqualification is 50.00 BGN.

For each nomination (entry number) the participant receives a separate invitation; this allows participants with more nominated projects and / or nominees in more categories to make a bigger number of their personal guests a part of the Ceremony.

All nominees shall be included in the Ceremony’s Book, which will be distributed among all guests and representatives of the media at the event. The nominees will also receive a free copy of the luxury catalogue "Best of the Interior Design for 2017".

IMPORTANT! In order to avoid the clutter of projects at the end of the competition period and to facilitate their administration and jurying, the application fee before July 30th 2018 shall be 150.00 BGN.
The standard fee (180.00 BGN) application period is from July 31st to September 30th 2018.

The deadline for submitting last minute applications is from October 1st to 10th 2018, for a fee of 280.00 BGN.

⦿ Candidates from the 2017 Dibla Design Awards receive a 20% discount for each application submitted in 2018, i.e.: early application – 125.00 BGN; standard application – 150.00 BGN, last moment application – 230.00 BGN. For re-examination of disqualified projects the deadline is 30th September 2018 and the fee remains unchanged – 50.00 BGN.
